Honor and Memorial Gifts to Scranton Library are a fitting tribute to celebrate a birthday, holiday, anniversary, or another special occasion; to honor a loved one, a special teacher, or a co-worker; or to remember a friend or a relative who has passed away. The Library will provide acknowledgment of the gift to the honoree or the family of the deceased. For a gift of $50 or more, the Library will personalize a circulating library item in the subject area and/or format of the donor’s choice, if requested.
For a gift of $25 or more, you can designate an honor or memorial gift specifically for our Children’s Department. The Library will personalize the circulating library item using a book plate. While the Library cannot honor specific title requests, please let us know if you would like the book to contain certain subject matter (i.e. a picture book about trucks, a non-fiction book about animals, or a fantasy chapter book) and we will do our best to honor the request.

Purchasing an engraved brick for yourself or as a gift is another great way to support the library. Simply return your completed form to the library anytime in person, or by mail. The library currently lays all new bricks once a year in our gardens or walkways where the whole town can view them.
All donations are subject to our Gift and Donation Policy.
